The HAP-100 preamp and headphone amplifier has been designed for the audio enthusiast for whom quality headphone listening is a top priority. The HAP-100's innovative engineering combines features never before available at this price point. Most significantly, the HAP-100 provides headphone listeners with single-ended Class-A performance - considered by many to be the ultimate in high-fidelity design.
Similarly, the HAP-100 incorporates the same volume control technology we first developed for our flagship P-20 preamp. At the unit's core is a switched-resistor ladder network of low-noise, thin-film resistors, one per volume setting, permitting discrete, high-resolution increments of 1dB for each of the HAP-100's one hundred volume steps. In welcome addition to the volume control's fine-adjustment precision, the signal's passage through a single, high-quality resistor at all settings ensures minimal sound degradation.
Following this, a pristine, zero-negative-feedback preamplifier stage delivers vanishingly low levels of distortion, crystalline accuracy and genuine musicality. A true minimalist design, the preamp incorporates an extremely low-noise FET input stage and single high-quality capacitor in the entire signal path.
The HAP-100 is built on a platform that provides the unit's audio circuits with the purest of DC power. With its toroidal transformer for minimizing magnetic-field interference and capacitor bank's massive energy reserve, the HAP-100's linear power supply delivers explosive dynamics and lightning-fast transients.
The HAP-100's specs are nothing short of stellar: THD+N of less than 0.001% and a dynamic range in excess of 110 dB for the subtlest of musical details against the blackest of backgrounds - without a hint of coloration. The HAP-100's performance, features, style and price are bound to delight.
